"I would say that I am a landscape artist although my main interest is in the detail of the landscape. When painting outside you will find me on the edge or at the bottom of the sea cliffs, in among the hedgerows and searching the commons for prehistoric sites of our secret landscape. I revel in natures strong sunlight and wild winds, trying to capture natures plant life at its best."
